A "Lama" is a Buddhist monk in Nepali language. It is also a common last name of a specific ethnic group in Nepal: Tamangs. In ancient times, Tamangs were warriors and considered to be migrants from Tibet. The name “LaMa Walks” comes from the last name of the Founder and Director of the company, Rajesh Lama, who also belongs to the same ethnic group.
With his involvement in the tourism field from 2009, his passion for travelling, outdoor lifestyle, learning and teaching, and his entrepreneurial spirit inspired him to ventured out on his own in 2013 to create LaMa Walks. The company continues to gain momentum with every passing season, and is now recognized as a high quality service with first-rate safety standards, an excellent track record and qualified, experienced and passionate staff that are treated and paid fairly.
As the Executive Director at Himalayan Medics, safety and security is the first priority for LaMa, and all LaMa Walks team members. LaMa Walks will never compromise safety of its clients or staff. Even in the aftermath of the Nepal Earthquake 2015, when tourism slowed significantly, LaMa Walks would not accept clients in areas, or during seasons, where safety was questionable.
If you want to experience the greatness of the mighty Himalayas, have the adventure of a lifetime, and ensure that yourself and your trekking companions are receiving the highest standard of safety and care in the industry, then LaMa is who you want to walk with.

I got a recommendation from a friend to use LaMa Walks for my trek in the Annapurna Hills - the best tip ever!
I walked upstairs, uphill, in forests, downhill and downstairs, always with a patient and happy LaMa by my side. The evenings we stayed at nice guesthouses (all booked in advance) ate good food and talked to other trekkers. Every day they asked me "where did you find this guide?"
The last evening we sat down to do an evaluation of the trek. This he does, to make sure that YOU have enjoyed the trek to the fullest, and to know if there are things he could to better or differently. This makes him a great guide and the best choice for a trek in the Himalayas.

I walked with LaMa for three weeks, in friendship, along the Annapurna circuit. A great experience, and because of LaMa without any problems or illness. He is cautious, always aware of your physical fitness. We had a lot of fun: singing, playing gamba with other guides, connecting with locals along the way. LaMa is an experienced mountain biker, free climber and musician with a deep sense of Nepalese culture. He was a careful, experienced and understanding companion.
